They're tight and roll smooth. Beside, if the problem were rollers then clicking sound would be permanent regardless the revs, right? In my case clicking goes away as soon as I rev up a bit.

I done the waterpump, because the propeller was shattered. Not sure if that's related to the "clicking problem"

If it's chunks, I'd keep looking.
I lost the photo:/ but what I found it was definitively fuzz forming a nice hedgehog on the magnet.
